transfer cases

Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum, and I was wondering what my options were on transfer cases for an 07' 6.0. My daily driver has the electronic shift on the fly which I DO NOT like, and would much rather have the manual shift transfer case I believe it is the NV 271 if I remember correctly. My question is...

Is there a way to simply replace the electronic shifting component on the transfer case of the 273 with a manual shifting lever?

If that's not possible can I take the internals from my 273 and put it into a 271 that way I will have a reliable transfer case that I know is in good shape?

Just trying to find some options. Its not a big deal but if an option were to present itself I would definately consider swapping it out just for peace of mind.

Thanks

The 92-97 trucks do have the borgwarner cases but the new trucks have either a new venture or new process I can't remember which. Does anyone have any ideas for switching over transfer cases either components or the entire unit from elctronic shift on the fly to manual shift?

I at one pint in time put combined a np207, and np231 and the back half of a np231 most of the parts between the 207 and 231 were pretty much the same. This was a jeep and a nissan transfercase though got them out of a junkyard for a cherokee. Point being if you had them both torn apart they probably have similar parts. One will definately have a different shift mechinism (sp?) Why is it that you are so worried about the tcase? They seem as a whole to be solid behind 500+hp 4wheel launches which is pretty rough on them.

Like I said I'm not worried about the transfer case, it is just a project for the future b/c I would much rather have a manual shifting transfer case than the electronic shift on the fly. Its just a personal preference. So I was wondering what my options were...

I agree to that manual hubs and tcase is the best. I had a few chevys and the lack of hubs sucked. I do like the electronic hubs but honestly I have never been somewhere and suddenly needed 4wd with out knowing in advance. I still manually lock my esof hubs if I think ill be where ill need 4wd
